Kurt Angle revealed on Raw last week that he will be having his ‘farewell match’ at WrestleMania 35, before ending his illustrious career.
Since then, wrestling fans have been speculating about who the former WWE Champion will be facing in his final match at the show of shows. However, it appears that we may not have to wait too much longer to find out, with WWE advertising on Twitter that Angle will be revealing his WrestleMania 35 opponent on Raw next week.

Fans suggested that an Angle vs. John Cena match would make sense. Cena’s first match in WWE was against Angle on Smackdown in 2002, and Angle’s final career should come full circle with his final match being against the 16 time World Champion.
Interestingly enough, Raw is emanating from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, the exact same arena that Cena made his debut against the Olympic gold medalist.
WWE is also advertising: Finn Balor and a ‘mystery opponent’ (99% sure it will be Braun Strowman) taking on the new Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush. As well as Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre and Ronda Rousey defending her Raw Women’s Championship against Dana Brooke. Yes, you read that right, Dana Brooke is in a Women’s Championship match in 2019.
Paul Heyman also announced last week that Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will be appearing live ahead of his WrestleMania 35 clash with the aforementioned Rollins. Raw will be stacked this week, something that is to be expected with just three weeks until WrestleMania and plans for the card seemingly unclear.
